Cisco End-of-Life / End-of-Sale Batch #50 includes more disappointment for Cisco 12000 owners. Although the Cisco PIX 501 is a popular product, check out the Cisco ASA 5505. It's similarly priced and much more powerful..

Don't forget, most EoL / EoS announcements include a list of product migration options. If you need help deciding which product is best for you, send me a message.
